With the release of her new album, “Applause” Lady Gaga is interviewed on ABC News.
I thought of nothing but my fans
I am such an active person, I love performing
I used the ‘ode to the jester’ who lives for applause
I truly missed my fans…I began to cry
I live for making you happy
I couldn’t dance or walk so I had to create
We believe she demonstrates her ESFP character type, describing the details of her hip injury, her extremely emotional connection to her fans, the unhappiness of not being able to perform and her action orientation and need to always be doing something.
The ESFP is interested in people and experiences and their dislike of rules and routine, are justified by their view that their reason for existing is to bring harmony, sympathy and support to peoples' lives saying 'I just had to do something to help.' The keywords here are 'do' and 'help;' caring and practical in equal measure. The ESFP has an ability to make others feel so special. Down to earth and practical, ESFPs live in the here and now preferring to take life as it comes with the optimistic view that it’s bound to be good, (and if it isn’t then there’s always next time!).
Which character type do you identify with?
